I was wondering if an explosive forward movement can help in self defense to counter-attack an opponent, or to simply reduce him before he surprises you with a weapon, or reduce him before he can even use the weapon he may have at hand.
However, I think this kind of movement is not something you can do easily when required. Some sort of training must be required though. If so, what kind of training can help to develop an explosive forward movement?
Edit: really guys, anything that can cut the distance between you and your opponent is on what I'm interested.
